Tidal

TIDAL (tī'dăl, Heb. tidh‘āl). An unidentified king, mentioned only in Gen.14.1, Gen.14.9 where he is called “king of Goiim” (“nations,” kjv) and is allied with three other kings, with Kedorlaomer king of Elam as the leader (Gen.14.5, Gen.14.17). Invading westward, they defeated the kings of the cities of the plain and took plunder and captives, including Lot. Abraham routed the coalition in a night raid, rescued the captives, and recovered the goods (Gen.14.15-Gen.14.16).
